Chukwuka Utazi, former Senator representing Enugu-North Senatorial District of Enugu State on Sunday became the latest member to dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Utazi, who represented Enugu-North between 2015 and 2023, submitted his resignation letter to the Chairman of PDP in Nkpologu Ward of Uzo-Uwani Local Government Area of the state, Chief Robert Ezeagu, on Sunday

In the letter, Utazi said he is abandoning the PDP because the “ideals that attracted me to the party have receded into oblivion”.

.The letter reads: “It is with reservation that I resign my membership of the People’s Democratic Party which I had the privilege of being a foundation member at its inception in 1998.

“The reason being that those ideals that attracted me to the party have since receded into oblivion leaving me with no option but to leave and find another party that will afford me ample opportunity to operate maximally and contribute to national development.

“I am therefore wishing you all well as you continue to work hard to eke out a living in the best way possible under the present circumstances. Thanks for your understanding and cooperation so far.”

The former senator however, did not disclose his next move in politics.
